The mountain acreage is located approximately 10.1 miles North of the quaint town of Council, Idaho. Council acts as the county seat of Adams County and sits along US Highway 95. This area is considered the gateway to recreation in Central Idaho providing access to the Payette National Forest, the Seven Devils mountain range, and a plethora of outdoor recreational opportunities. Some of the outdoor adventures residents and visitors enjoy include fishing, hunting, skiing, snowmobiling, camping, and hiking. In particular, many appreciate the strolling or biking along the Weiser River Trail, which is an 84 mile long public recreational trail formed along the old Pacific and Idaho Northern railroad grade. This trail follows the Weiser River, provides access to thousands of acres of public lands, and is a great place to spot big game, waterfowl, and other wildlife. Another hotspot in the region is Lost Valley Reservoir, which is a public recreational site that offers camping, canoeing, and fishing experiences. Local events celebrated in the area include Meadow Valley Days, the World Famous Porcupine Races, and the Adams County Fair and Rodeo.
